While modernized superheros are given a darker color scheme, the original superhero color guide contains vivid hues. The original DC comic books contain playful color schemes that make each hero stand out in a positively bright way.

This superhero color guide was created to showcase the positively bright colors that consumed the traditionally popular comic books. This guide has recently been unveiled through a Facebook fan page. The guide allows artists to create comics, sketches and artwork that embodies the colors that were used in the 1980s.

The colorized chart depicts specific colors that match superheros and villains such as Batman, Superwoman and Supergirl. This guide is particularly useful for designers and illustrators to mimic the color schemes or to gain inspiration from when embarking on their next creative journey.
